Before I start this post I have something awesome to offer you 🙂 If you saw my review about Heaven Scented Bathbombs (read it here) and fancied trying them, the owner got in touch and is offering a discount to anybody who quotes Polka Dot Teapot to her when ordering. Links to the Facebook page are in the post!
So over the weekend May June 2015 birchbox arrived I’m not that thrilled about this months box, it’s not as exciting as I was expecting it to be. But there is a few things I’m looking forward to using. The theme for this months box is “French Sole” and personally, I think the box looks like it’s been covered in Liquorice AllSorts.
I’m most looking forward to trying out the STYL temporary tattoos.I I’ve seen these floating around Instagram and I think these just look so pretty and summery! These retail at £7.99 and are perfect for a cut summer look without the commitment of a tattoo.
I’m also looking forward to trying out the Mirenesse ICurl Secret Wepon 24 Hour Mascara. I’ve been wanting a new mascara and this will be good to just pop in my bag or take with me when I go away. the retail price for a full size is £24.
I also received a hair product in this box which is the Beauty Protector “Protect and Oil” and this retails for £16 at full size. I’m not normally a fan of Beauty oils as I think they make my hair greasy and I definitely won’t be used two bottles of this so I’ll be giving 1 to my friend Natalie to try as well.
The most expensive sample I received in this box was the “English Laundry No 7 For Her” perfume sample. This retails at £60. I’m not overly keen on the smell of this as I find it quite strong, however I think as it wears off during the day it might be better. I’ll be popping this in my handbag so I can use it as a travel perfume.
The full size product I have this month is the Balance Me Super Moisturising Body Wash. This claims to be richly hydrating and dry skin friendly which could be very useful for me, and this retails at £9 for a 100ml tube. The only thing that puts me off this is the smell, it smells quite leafy whereas I prefer more fruity body washes.
The last, and most disappointing item I got in this months Beauty Box is the Yes to Cucumbers pack of ten face wipes. I’m not keen on cucumber scents and I personally don’t see face wipes as a luxury product I’d want samples of. I’ll keep these in my bag as they are travel size which is useful, but I’m not too thrilled that I have these. These retail at £4.99 a pack.
And that’s that, not the best box I’ve ever gotten, but I am looking forward to using the mascara and tattoos. Did anybody else get a Birch Box this month? What did you get?
